A question often posed by photographers is: ‘What’s the sharpest lens I can buy for my camera?’ In reality this can only properly be answered by examining lens tests that have been carried out in a reliable and repeatable way. It’s also a question that needs to be qualified. Do you want a wideangle or a telephoto, a zoom or a prime? What’s your budget? With all this in mind, we decided to provide some kind of sensible answer anyway.

Although we’ve tested more lenses than ever over the past couple of years, we’ve had to accept that even that’s not enough to provide a useful answer. For this reason, we’ve teamed up with DxOMark, one of the most respected names in the photographic industry, to sift through its extensive database of lens-test data in order to pick out the sharpest optics for each major camera system.
